WipEout HD Officially Dated, Priced

Daimion Pinnock's Avatar Posted by Producer, SCEA

By now you’ve probably come across some great previews for wipEout HD, the upcoming anti-gravity racing title on PSN. Between the 1080p racing at 60 frames per second, the awesome trophy support, motion steering via SIXAXIS, online racing and A LOT more, the excitement level is understandably high. Well, we have some more wipEout HD goodness to share today in the form of an OFFICIAL RELEASE DATE.

Drumroll, please!


Your wipEout HD thirst will be quenched on September 25. Yes, that’s right, just 10 days from today. For just $19.99, wipEout HD will be available for download only and includes the following awesomeness:

  • Full HD Visuals
  • 5 Game Modes – Single Race, Tournament, Time Trial, Speed Lap and Zone Mode
  • Online play that supports up to 8 racers competing on a track at a time
  • 2-player split screen (horizontally and vertically) offline
  • 8 reversible tracks and 12 teams
  • Optional use of SIXAXIS motion controls to steer your ship
  • A great soundtrack remixed in Dolby 5.1 AND the option for custom playlists that allow you to race to whatever playlists you have on your HDD
  • And more, including Trophy support, which we’ll outline for you in a future post – so keep your eyes peeled.

That’s it for now from the wipEout HD camp. We’re looking forward to racing with you all online on Sept 25th!

Nice, definitely I’ll download it. Thank you for the info. ^^

Sony should have had this out already, giving it plenty of time for gamers and generating buzz for the PS3. As it is it is very close to a bunch of good games coming out and I can see people saving their dollars for other stuff instead. The timing is poorly thought out. Still, looking forward to it. Better late than never.

@ Kenshin001
It probably wouldn’t have been much good coming out before it was finished. And remember they’ve added trophies, custom soundtracks, and more tracks in recent months. If they had released earlier it would have been 1/2 the game it is.

But regardless, at this price a lot of people will by this game.

My question is is the date the same for Europe?

Can I trust a release date? NO.

Tell me when the game is finished and is out.

Thank You

It would be nice to buy if I could find me a PSN CARD to purchase it with. WHERE THE HECK ARE THEY? IT’s SEPTEMBER and almost OCTOBER and the cards are still not out. what is wrong with you people, do you like being last in the console race? Do you like your customers to be angry all the time? Seems like you do to me.

YES!!!! THANK YOU… I’m picking up this…. LBP & R2…. my wallets crying but I’m soo happy, and the 25th rumor was true… now how big is the download?

Half_life000111 said:

The PSN Cards are out and they will only be sold from Sept 16th on out. Call your local Blockbuster, I did and they had them in stock… I even got to see them… they just didn’t realize till they read the box that they couldn’t activate the cards until the 16th….

Buubar said:

September 15th, 3:27 am

Sounds awesome – I’ll definitely be picking this up.

Any news on a “CONFIRMED” EU Price/Release Date?

I have all my WipeOut games behind glass. It would have been nice to have a disk, but will still buy.

THANK YOU!! YESS!!! THIS IS AMAZING!! If you don’t buy this game you might as well throw your PS3 out of a moving car, because this is what the PSN is all about!!!!

Are You planning a Blu-Ray release of this title (or maybe in Europe?)

SinsToJudge said:

September 15th, 3:47 am


EU and AU will get this soon** no doubt.


EvoAnubis said:

September 15th, 3:53 am

Excellent! Sounds good to me!

Kenshin001 said:

September 15th, 3:56 am


Review codes are already out, the game has been demoed at numerous events. I don’t think it is a matter of it not being ready. Could be wrong, but it seems more a matter of Sony’s tendency to delay things.

r-nice said:

September 15th, 3:56 am

This game is going to be awesome. This will be my first Wipeout.

Wip3ou7 said:

September 15th, 4:00 am

Please make some DLC for this game, more remastered racetracks, possibly brand new tracks? ship skins, cold storage alternative soundtrack, anything! $20 is a steal and I’m itching to dump more money into this game for more and more content for as long as you guys can possibly make it. =)

Kenshin001 said:

September 15th, 4:02 am

Can we get confirmation of a worldwide release on the 25th? Come on, you know you want to. Make lots of people happy.

SWANN said:

September 15th, 4:09 am

Now you’re talkin’. That’s a day 1 download for me. Thanks, Sony!!!

WHAT said:

September 15th, 4:10 am

You can copy Cold Storage from WipeOut to the HDD. I did it and play it with WarHawk. ;)

karmacoma01 said:

September 15th, 4:22 am

Sweeeeeet! I really hope it´s released worldwide the same day.

Lunix said:

September 15th, 4:24 am

Can not wait for this :)

Is the release date the same for the EU?
and will it be £11.99 as some websites have already reported?

Thanks! :)

unclemonty said:

September 15th, 4:26 am

Finally, at last.

What will the United Kingdom price be? I work it out to be £11.20 ?

Morphine16 said:

September 15th, 4:36 am

Fersis said:

mcx said:

September 15th, 4:55 am

So close awesome. Can’t wait. At that price they should pack in the game download with a new system.

Mana Knight said:

September 15th, 4:57 am

Too good of news. I’ll be buying for sure. :D

Californian said:

September 15th, 5:03 am

PEALED not PEELED. Come on Sony.
Anyway, enough of my grammar pet peeve.
This game looks AWESOME!!! Definitely buying it on the day it releases. I don’t know if I’ll get that Platinum trophy though. I want one so bad!

tuomi said:

September 15th, 5:03 am

I’d like 4-player splitscreen, is there a possibillity this will be implemented at a later time?

The support for 4-players is low in general if you don’t look at sports-games and if you have a 84 inch projector-screen you want to use it to it’s best.

darkiewonder said:

Ship editor?

Silurus said:

September 15th, 5:07 am

Excellent, hoping Europe does not get screwed on the release date.

xXoONiko_9OoXx said:

September 15th, 5:10 am

Is there going to be a playable demo for this game?

GGCAN said:

September 15th, 5:17 am

Thanks Damion.

I’d been reading at other blogs that a rumor was out about Wipeout HD coming out very soon, but thought I wouldn’t say anything until the official post was out.

I’ve been waiting, I’m sure like many others since the announcement of this game for it to be out.

Glad to see the news.

Ramage said:

September 15th, 5:20 am


I’ve been waiting for this, you can guarantee I’ll be buying it the second I get home from work or it gets put up. Thanks for the update!

GGCAN said:

September 15th, 5:20 am

Damion….just wondering if you have the amount of space this download will take up on our HDD.

I just upgraded my harddrive last week, as I wanted to be ready for all the great stuff coming out, but many people are at their limit, or very near.

I know other games I’m hearing coming out could be around 5 GB….just thought the estimate now, may be beneficial in case other PS3 players wanted to upgrade their HDD before this comes out.

Thanks again.

Been waiting for this since the announce of the PS3. Although I’m a little disappointed that we do not get Eliminator or Head On Mode!!!!

Hoping for some awesome DLC with these Modes and of course some more WipEout Pulse-tracks.

Love you guys/gals at Siny Studio Liverpool!

Gunwing said:

September 15th, 5:56 am

Too little too late Sony. I only have a PSP now my PS3 is gone for good. BTW Any chance we could get yet another PSP WipEout game? Also please keep the hardcore support comeing for the PSP! We need all those killer Japanese RPGs on the PSP, we also need another exclusive StarWarsBattleFront game on the PSP! (one that takes full advantage of the new dev kits, and unlocked 333MHz)
